Lincoln: Chosen for Tree Project
Why are students digging in the dirt?
The students, staff, and tree huggers at Lincoln Elementary School are excited about a new environmental project that is taking place right on our school grounds. The Student Conservation Association (SCA) CommuniTree Team and Lincoln students began the joyful task of planting 25 native trees to Indiana on Thursday, May 17th. The school will be creating and maintaining their very own arboretum of Indiana Native Trees, a project that will continue down Commonwealth Avenue as a linear Arboretum. In total, over 300 trees will be planted with over 30 species of trees. Check out the video on the right to see how the digging went.

Mrs. Bailey Sponsors Vocation Motivation
What is Vocation Motivation?
It's a workshop designed to help students understand the importance of knowing what it takes to excel in their chosen vocations. The workship includes fun excercises that motivate and encourage academic achievement. It also touches on subjects regarding college readiness, dressing professionally, and appropriate language usage. As part of the experience, participants had to make an appointment with an adult at Lincoln for the purpose of conducting an interview which is an important life skill. It's one of the great things happening at Lincoln School! On the left are the participants of Vocation Motivation.

Ned's Kindness Adventure Comes to Lincoln
Thanks to the planning of our Assisant Principal, Ms. Hobson, Lincoln students were able to participate in a special assembly today that focused on the merits of kindness. It was a unique presentation that mixed magic and a virtual trip to Kenya, Africa in which Lincoln Leaders learned that the children of Kenya have much in common with kids in the U.S. They go to school, they want to learn, they like to play and have fun, they know the value of a smile and the importance of being kind to all people because everyone matters.
Lincoln students have the unique opportunity to spread kindness to a distant country by purchasing some of the handmade articles that were made by the people of Kenya. How will these purchases promote kindness? The money will go toward building wells in Kenya so that the people there can have clean water for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Here's an opportunity to show that we care for all people!

A question for Lincoln Leaders: What is meant by the saying in Kenya - Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable?
